Clem

The flood gates are now officially open:yikes: First mod installed today.................ECIS CAI. Any ideas what to do next?

Thanks to Alex325i for the special package from Florida:D Took me a whole 10 minutes to install it and 20 minutes of testing it out before I made it back home:bigpimp:

First impression.............definately a better acceleration response:D A$$ dyno felt a slight increase mostly in faster RPM climb, but this could be my imagination:dunno:

The vacuum sound really kicks in around 3500rpm. At light throttle there is a slight squeling type sound, is this normal? Then there is just the normal engine sound up to the mentioned 3500 mark.

Here's a few before and after shots.................

this one is a little dark but you get the idea

and the infamous Nate pose:tsk:

Looks good Phil, but, time for some simple green under the hood. Or do you pick up too much dirt on those Amish farms:dunno: :dunno:

That dirt was under the OEM box, not to worry I cleaned it up right after I took the close up pic:)

But you are right the farms are really tough with the dust:(

Everything sounds good Phil.

ECIS is operating in normal parameters. Glad you're happy with it.

Do you want the brace? You never confirmed or rejected. Let me know ASAP I have a couple of interested parties.

Phil -

Looks good! :thumbup: Are you out of your warranty period, and if not, does the ECIS affect the warranty at all?
I think they will give you the "voids warranty" speech :dunno: But I plan on swapping out OEM and ECIS when I go in for new pedal and any warranty/maintenance work:)

Since you said it is mostly cosmetic, I think it would be wise for me to wait until UCC or someone else;) comes out with sways for the xi's:dunno:

Want do you think? Or of course for the right bargain price I might be tempted;) :bigpimp:

Working on a deal for it right now but if it falls through I'll let you know.

IMHO wait for sways, strutbars are SLIGHTLY affective but more eyecandy.
